Beginning Weaving Workshop
February 22 @ 9:00 am - February 24 @ 4:00 pm
The Tavern Spinners & Weavers Guild holds one or two Beginning Weaving workshops each year, depending on interest. Each workshop is three days in length and conducted at the historic Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett’s Tavern in Heathsville, VA. Each workshop attendee will learn to warp, dress and weave on a 4 or 8 shaft floor loom in a supportive hands-on atmosphere. This workshop is for those with no weaving experience or those wishing to refresh their memory since their last weaving experience. Sufficient looms are provided for each student’s classroom use or attendees may bring their own workshop-sized loom. In addition to the two primary instructors, guild members are on hand each day to help provide one-on-one guidance and support. Our goal is to provide workshop attendees with the basics of handweaving and to inspire those interested in the fiber arts.
The fee for this three-day workshop is $175.00.
